Hi folks,

Lately I have noticed that my speaker is intermittently on and off when I use my Z. If I press a bit with my thumb right next to the speaker grille the sound comes back. When I let up, it's gone again.

I get the feeling that there's a loose connection at the speaker itself, probably something that just needs a good crimp. Is disassembly a pain for this? Am I on the right diagnostic track here?

I'd hate to be soundless. The headphone jack works great. Without the speaker I can't use my Z as a reliable alarm clock or pager pest.

Thanks,

Scott

Well, that's good to know. How do you go about opening the c1000 model? Is this a common problem with Zaurus clamshells?

Thanks,
Scott

the speaker sits snuggly into a circular slot in the bottom of the case. it is not connected by any wires to the motherboard. Most likely, the connections are tarnished in some way. I suggest you open the z up, wipe with alcohol pads but make sure you dont touch anything else. rub the ends till it showes cleanliness. that is what i can gather. I opened my c 3200 once just to change the internal hardisk.

Just an update...My Z's been in a drawer for a while and when I charged her up again there was no sound at all out of the speaker. I finally mustered up the courage to open it up. I gave the speaker's contacts a going over with a clean cloth and reseated and reassembled. After a short prayer to the computer gods I pressed the power button and all seems well with my Z and its sound. Getting those six screws out was a real bear for me!

Thanks for the replies.
